On August 23, 2014, at approximately 10:34 a.m., officers with the Redding Police Department were dispatched to a residence on Royal Oaks Drive regarding a burglary alarm. Arriving officers located an unoccupied vehicle in the driveway with a sawed-off shotgun in it. It was determined that nobody was to be inside of the residence.
Officers, with the assistance of K-9 Tarro, were preparing for entry into the house when a subject fled from the back door in an apparent attempt to elude capture. The subject was identified as Dean Michael Hagerman, 35 years of Redding, and was quickly apprehended by officers. K-9 Tarro was deployed inside the residence after numerous voice commands were given for any more suspects to surrender. K-9 Tarro located a second burglar hiding in the residence and assisted in effecting the arrest of Dale Allen Pierce Jr., 31 years of Redding. No other suspects were located inside the residence.
Dale Allen Pierce Jr. is on Post Release County Supervision (PRCS) and has been arrested by the Redding Police Department ten times since January 01, 2014. Those arrests ranged from property crime offenses to narcotic crimes. Most recently, he was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle less than two days ago.
Dale Allen Pierce Jr. and Dean Michael Hagerman were later booked into the Shasta County Jail for burglary, possession of stolen property, and weapons charges.
